Wellspring Academy, a school that offers courses of Mathematics, Science, Human Sciences and Economics has marked anniversary of 10 years of operations in a ceremony that coincided with the awarding of certificates to its 41 former students who completed secondary school.
The celebrations were marked in a jovial ambiance by students, parents, teachers and school’s administrative staff. Derrick Munyankindi, a graduate from a combination of Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry (MPC) spoke to IGIHE about his pleasure to have completed secondary school studies from a reputable school and his readiness to go the extra mile.
“This school doesn’t offer only science but instils good values in us and empowers us to face the future. Wellspring Academy teaches us about Christianity which is the foundation for a brighter future. I have got a good package of science and discipline from this school which will help me become an important citizen of this country and the world at large. This foundation will also help me perform well at university,” he said.
Stephen Rudakemwa, deputy director of Wellspring Academy, said the school is proud to mark 10 year of operations in training future leaders for the country and the world as the mission of the school.
“I urge our graduates to retain the knowledge they acquired from here. Christian values must accompany science to succeed in life. We urge them to lean on the Almighty God in their life,” he said.
Andy Harrington, director and one of the founders of Wellspring Foundation, said it was a good step by the school for graduating students at the second time, producing good minds for the future of the country.
“We offer a purposeful education. We train students to be good leaders who will transform Rwanda and show difference in the world entirely,” he said.
Among 41 who received certificates of completion include 22 males and 19 females in addition to other 46 who completed in the inaugural graduation, last year.
Located in Nyarutarama, Wellspring Academy was established by members of Christian Life Assembly and Wellspring Foundation in 2007, with a mission to instil Christian values in students while healing the wounds of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi.
The school is among the best schools in Kigali and currently has 642 enrolled students.
